Explore the IE Brown Executive MBA

Brown University, founded in 1764 and located in Providence, Rhode Island. Brown is a leading research university home to world-renowned faculty, and also an innovative educational institution where the curiosity, creativity and intellectual joy of students drives academic excellence. Brown graduates hold leadership positions across the globe in industry, politics and society.

IE Business School, located in Madrid, Spain, is consistently ranked as one of the best business schools in the world. Since its founding in 1973 as an independent, post-graduate institution, it has earned a reputation as an innovative, entrepreneurial school that has transformed management education with practice-oriented programs, the incorporation of the humanities into business training, and the use of learning methodologies combining online and face-to-face interactions.

Anchored in the values and strengths of both institutions, the IE Brown Executive MBA integrates innovative management skills with the human sciences and practical business studies. The 15-month curriculum is designed to develop well-rounded managers and entrepreneurs who do not shy away from difficult questions and can therefore be change agents in their organizations, industries and communities.

This programmatic integration develops key skill sets allowing participants to think beyond the need for an immediate solution and focus on strategic success. Graduates, as reflective leaders, will be able to draw on critical thinking skills, ethical business practices and apply an entrepreneurial mindset with the agility and versatility demanded by today’s business environment.

Our EMBA curriculum is triple-certified by AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS. Graduates will receive one diploma awarded by both institutions and will enjoy full alumni status from both Brown University and IE Business School.
